Head-to-HeadEngland haven’t had the best record in recent years against the Belgians. In the 2018 World Cup, Gareth Southgate’s men were beaten twice by them, the latter in the Third Place Play-Off losing 2-0.
Their overall record is excellent however, losing only four of their 23 games, with the Three Lions enjoying 15 wins.
The last England win in this fixture came back in 2012 in a friendly.

Our England v Belgium PredictionsEngland will have to be at their best if they’re going to take anything from the game, but Southgate’s men often do well against the big sides and a score draw may be a worthwhile punt at 7/2 with new betting site PariMatch.
Harry Kane has been in good form so far this season and will pose a big threat, alongside the likes of Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish, who could start after an impressive display against Wales.
Kane can be backed at 6/4 to score anytime with the bookmaker (or 5/1 courtesy of BetVictor's price boost), while Romelu Lukaku, who will be leading the line for Belgium, can be backed at 17/10 anytime and is certainly worth a punt.
De Bruyne will be the key man to keep quiet, and if he is allowed to dominate, it could be a long night for the Three Lions, with the Belgium win and BTTS worthwhile at 4/1.
An England win and BTTS can be backed at 17/4, but we could see the visitors grab all three points here and we would profit from 888sports' terrific enhanced odds.
